I was honoured to be invited to previews of Wicked on Broadway over 10 years ago.
I fell in love with this magical masterclass of musical theatre instantly and crowned it ‘Best Family Musical EVER’.
Tonight I re-visited this mammoth sell0out production for the first time in 7 years at the HUGE 2000+ seater – Apollo Victoria Theatre.
Wicked is simply 5* on every level from visuals, sound to the hugely impressive cast!
Wicked: The Untold Story of the Witches of Oz – is a stunning, moving, hysterical and beautifully produced musical with music and lyrics by Stephen Schwartz and a book by Winnie Holzman.

Alex went to Broadway to meet two of the most popular Stars of the show…..
Kate Reinders on Broadway:
Eden Espinosa is an American singer and stage actress, who is best known for her performances as Elphaba for the Broadway, Los Angeles and San Francisco productions of the musical Wicked…..
Not only is it still a timeless musical, but having seen this spectacular production for the 20th time tonight, it is also without question one of the best, most elaborate & impressive family musicals in West End history!
Absolute value for money from start to finish with no expense spared.
Wicked is based on the 1995 Gregory Maguire novel Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West, a parallel novel of the 1939 film The Wizard of Oz and L. Frank Baum’s 1900 classic story The Wonderful Wizard of Oz.
Enjoy our EXCLUSIVE interview with Wicked composer Stephen Schwartz:
The sets and costumes are sensational and the Stars in this show leave you speechless with their breath-taking talent and energy.
The keys to this shows success is the music. Schwartz has done a remarkable job making every note count.
The songs are beautifully written, moving, memorable & hugely melodic.
It ticks all boxes for all ages. It feels so modern yet respects, alludes to and gives great nods to the hugely successful musicals of the past.
